Federal Contract Data Reports Will Move to SAM.gov Beta

The General Services Administration has announced the transition of a federal system that allows users to view, verify and modify procurement activities. Reporting functions of the Federal Procurement Data System or FPDS.gov will move to the beta SAM.gov Data Bank by fiscal year 2020's conclusion, GSA said Thursday.

Those who use FPDS for ad hoc reporting are advised to review the attributes of saved reports. This information will serve as a reference if files would require recreation in beta.SAM.gov's upcoming ad hoc tool.

The government will only accommodate conversions for reports created on or before Jan. 31. FPDS.gov will still maintain its current functions following the transition. SAM.gov's beta will feature contract reports in the website's "Data Bank" section.

An engines project of the Naval Air Warfare Center aircraft division will gain access to the Department of Defense’s supercomputers, which will aid in conducting simulation tests of naval aviation engines before actual demonstration in a laboratory. As part of the High Performance Computing Modernization Program Frontier Project portfolio, NAWCAD engineers can leverage the computers’ predictive modeling without having to risk actual resources for live demos.
